Birdwatching

Updated 24/07/2019

An informal group aimed at those interested in watching birds and sharing knowledge as we identify the various species seen on our outings.

The group have a monthly trip on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, visiting areas of interest.Transport is by car, sharing is encouraged and lifts arranged for non-drivers where possible. Members are responsible for paying any entrance fees, transport and parking costs as required.
Outings may involve walking over uneven or muddy ground, though at a leisurely pace and with frequent pauses to look at birds; a pair of binoculars is essential for good viewing.

Currently the first group BG-1, has reached maximum numbers so we are setting up a second group BG-2, which will meet on the 4th Wednesday of the month,usually to the same places.
If interested in BG-2 contact Margaret (group admin) via the email link on right of this page.

September trip was to RSPB Minsmere, a long drive but the sighting of a rare Pectoral Sandpiper and around 50 other species made it worthwhile.
